Noname - Telefone (Album)

No comments:

Its better to have finally got it at some point, then to not have gotten it at all. This is how we're approaching the length of time it took for Noname to return with a new project. While she rarely drops music, fans have continued to keep an enthusiastic interest in her, possibly from live performances, features, and behind the scene work. There's been some minor changes in her career, such as dropping Gypsy from her rap moniker. Which was a move to respect the culture of Gypsy people. None of the assumed single she's released are featured on the project, so we're getting all original, fresh music.

Today Noname proves the project "Telefone" is real with its release. The project is 10 songs deep, with production from Cam O'bi, Phoelix, Saba, Monte Book, and fellow artist joining her are theMIND, Xaviar Omar, Rayn Lenae, Joseph Chilliams, and Smino.

Let me start by saying that Esohel has dropped off some pretty solid tracks leading up to today, and you shouldn't miss out on what he's doing.

Psalm One & Angelenah - Gender, Fender, Bender (Album)

No comments:

A veteran emcee that's held the titled of "First Lady of Rhymesayers", dealt with ups and downs in her career, continues to deliver consistent material to the fans. Psalm One continues on her path with a new project called "Gender Fender Bender", and its packed. Often times people get stuck in what the rest of the industry is doing, that we don't go for our own ways of connecting and making a lasting relationship with the people. Everyone takes the same route of delivery but for this new album Psalm aims to bring something special.

"Gender Fender Bender", is triple disc album, only available in physical form, directly from her. No streaming on iTunes, Soundcloud, etc. The only other Hip Hop artist who, I can think of that, attempted this was Lupe Fiasco, which he canceled, called "LupEND". While releasing a disc album is obviously nothing new, Psalm does channel ones love of the exclusive things and demonstrates that we can't consider CDs antiques just yet. Selling a album that you can only get directly, in the physical, at limited quantity, is essentially a item for collectors. This is album that truly show what independent artist are about.

Three disc, three parts, but not all Psalm One, Angelenah, the fellow Rapper Chicks member, takes over to star on the "Bender"disc". Throughout the full project she gets MURS, ProbCause, PROF, Longshot, Add-2, Vic Spencer, Yomi, and many more with production from OnGaud, Optiks, Doc Da Mindbenda, Mulatto Patriot, and Wes P, to name a few.

"For the record, 4,5,6 (Produced by Law Beatz) is not a diss record. There's a whole story behind it. I'm a street, hip hop artist, so gang culture is almost expected and accepted with most street artist. All I'm saying is, people are who they are and that's cool but I'm just a 4 corner Hustler period!" Born and raised. I make reference to hoover because (its the biggest, nationally accepted and respected gang from Chicago) even tho there are similarities, I'm cut from a totally different cloth. I'm clearing the record to let it be known that there are all types of things going on in the streets of Chicago, but I'm just a product of my side of town and my upbringing. I'm coming with that new age Bump J approach."
